John Bowers & Roy Wilkins served together in the army in the second world war and met when they were posted in Germany.

They discovered a common interest in radio and decided that when the war was over they would set up a shop for amateur radio enthusiasts.

The business expanded into television rentals during the fifties when most people could not afford to buy a TV.

The sixties and seventies saw the boom in Hi-Fi , and Bowers & Wilkins was at the forefront of all the technological developments that were to come.

They have become renowned for their great old-fashioned service and this will surely be missed by hundreds of their loyal customers.

Not many of our businesses survive for seventy-five years, but Paul Wilkins has decided the time is now right to retire.

Watch out for some great bargains in the final few weeks.
